The Bunny Butt Slider A Winner For Top Water Action

I ordered a different pattern popper the other day. They are a variation of popper and streamer mixed. That is what attracted me to this style from the get go. I was looking for something that would move a little water and at the same time get the attention of the fish I was pursuing. I found that in the Bunny Butt Slider. The creator of this specialty fly is Steven Milburn who I think has come up with a winner here. I received my order on Friday and will be giving them a try next week off the wall on Smith Lake. I think this particular popper will be the ticket for some fall top water action and early spring fishing on the lake. I first saw this popper in action when Jay Eubanks made a trip with me on Smith back in the spring and used the white pattern to imitate the shad population on the Smith. On a day when nothing was happening on top he managed to land a nice spot with that particular pattern. I knew then that this fly had something special that would trigger takes and that is what inspired me to place my order. After seeing the quality and pattern combination available I am impressed. I can’t wait to get into some spot action with this pattern.

All these patterns have their place during the fishing season. I like the black/red early at daylight, the chartreuse is really good early spring especially on Smith where chartreuse is king during that time of the year, and the grey would be an all day bug more so for those cloudy days and shaded areas.

Hey, are you gonna send me some of those? I like the looks of those poppers. They should be great fishing Tombigbee State Park this fall.

These are part of the package I am getting together for you. I should have all of it ready by next week.

October is the month for top water action on Smith--we will plan a trip during that time, and yes cast those Bunny Sliders.

I use to fish for bass with the casting reel or spinning reel, but now I am into the fly fishing for bass and I may never go back to the casting and spinning, that is how much I like the fly rod for bass.

Bill,

I have heard of these before on Jay's site. Interesting concept. I need to send you some of my poppers to try! hee hee

Yes send me one and I will give it a try. October is a great month to land some quality spots on Smith. If I like the popper you can bet I will order some from you, and also do a review on my blog. That is how I got the Bunny popper by trying it out. Thanks for the comment.

I really believe all of these patterns will catch fish, as I stated the black/red is perfect at daylight. I think all of the patterns are big bass killers.
